“Everything you need and more.”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed for a week and wished it were longer. West View is extremely well kept and well equipped, everything you might need is there, the house is clean and well kept, the kind of place you feel you could just move into and live there, it feels like a home.
Some may be put off by there being no WiFi and a poor mobile signal but these were big plusses for us.
Our dog had a great week, we had trouble getting him to come in at night because he enjoyed roaming in the very large, well fenced garden all the time we were back at the house.
The view is great and the one properly dry sunset we had was spectacular.
This was our first visit to Skye, we are sure we will go back and unless we can come up with a good reason for staying in a different area then we'll be trying to book West View again.

We had a great week at West View, lovely house with great views. We had every type of weather imaginable so my advice to anyone would be to bring your wellies!. House is great, comfortable with all of the facilities you will need.

what can i say about this property. Before arriving the correspondence between myself and the owner Karen was extremely efficient, she made herself available answering any queries in a helpful and pleasant manner.
the actual property was lovely, the kitchen fully equipped with enough plates saucepans etc. bedrooms were clean comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. in each room there were towels and extra blankets available.The dining and living room had enough seating space with two lovely large settees and the view from the living room was second to none.
i cannot fault this property in any way.
would definitely consider re renting.

“One of the Best”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this cottage and once again I have to sing its praises. It is really spacious inside and provides absolutely everything you need . The minute you walk into the cottage you feel at home. It is clean,the beds are really comfy, the sofas are huge and perfect for sitting and watching the ferry crossing the Ocean to Isle of Harris. The views are brilliant from every window. There's a bench outside to sit and take it all in. It's about a 10min drive from Uig allowing for stopping in the passing places etc.
There's a grocery/everything shop in Uig called Rankins and the petrol station also sells some groceries. For a better selection there's the Co-op on the road from Portree to Uig just outside Portree.
There's a lovely walk from the cottage round the block which takes about an hour at a leisurely pace. I suggest setting off downhill so your last leg is also downhill. Walk to the end of the lane, turn right down to the crossroads, turn right up to the top road, turn right and turn right again just after the bus stop. You can also walk down to the bay by turning left at the crossroads but it's a longer walk than it looks. We took the car down. There are two picnic benches at the bay but nothing else except the view which is lovely.
Karen is a lovely person to deal with and has always managed to sort good weather for us which has made the holidays perfect. I have always received my deposit back within 3 days of getting home. I can 100% recommend this cottage, however if you want to be near to the shops and pubs etc this cottage is not for you. If on the other hand you want a quiet relaxing holiday this cottage is for you.

“Ideal quiet location surrounded by beautiful views”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for a week over Easter and it was brilliant. Although the cottage is out the way of everything it was perfect for what we wanted. Beautiful views all around, within a short drive of amenities and great for some peace and quiet away from busy work life. Cottage itself was well maintained, comfy warm beds and fully equipped kitchen what else could you ask for. Owners very friendly and would defintitely recommend to others. Thanks for a great stay.
